Thank You, Volunteers!

Thank you.  It can never be said enough to the selfless men and women who give up their weekends all season long so that the rest of us can compete in this sport.  I make it a point to thank as many volunteers as I can, from ring stewards, to starters, to jump judges, to the kid collecting pinnies.  Without them our events would not exist.  Did you remember to thank a volunteer at your show this weekend?

Susan Goldfischer was a voluteer at Groton House and send us a message on facebook.  Thanks, Susan!

Groton House by Susan Goldfischer

From Susan:

Just thought I’d share a pic I took on Friday at Groton House Farm during a brief break from my volunteer gig as warm up steward for dressage. GHF HT has five dressage rings running simultaneously with all competitors warming up in one field. Needless to say by mid day the vocal cords were begining to falter. On a quick trip to the loo I saw these two pups patiently waiting for their person to emerge. Volunteering at HTs is an awesome way to support eventing nation and I always feel as though I get back way more then I’ve given. Plus I have one heck of a t-shirt collection.
